Are you ready to sleep with these two?
Posted: 1/11/2019 1:37:04 AM
I'm overly nice with the animals. Late wife had half the bed with a line of death in the middle. I'd have to snake through the animals like a burglar dancing through lasers to get a spot on the other half.

Older men's expectations
Posted: 1/10/2019 1:14:29 AM
Remembering that we are on an over 45 forum, perhaps it's more prevalent in bigger cities, but a lot of the older woman feel that a younger man will be more energetic in general as far as getting out and about and doing things. I have seen lots of profiles with a a max age requested younger than they are. Probably some sense to that. But when they look 70 and posting 55... well sure, there there could be some bad genes and wear and tear from the lifestyle of the 70s and 80s, but I'm pretty sure i'm seeing a little white lie from time to time.

Older men's expectations
Posted: 1/9/2019 1:45:09 AM
Usually looking like they are in their 20s is a pretty good clue they might just be a scammer.

I'm starting to suspect a lot of older gals are lying about their ages though to attract younger men.

What do you get out of this forum?
Posted: 7/16/2017 1:42:34 AM
Been a lot of years years for me since I've been to POF. Looks like Match doesn't really want to support forum use anymore since there isn't a link for it now. Used to be a good source of entertainment. Too bad they sold out to match, but for 570 mil I wouldn't say no either. Sorry to see it pushed to the wayside.

I think I am to over protective. What to do???
Posted: 11/13/2008 2:17:43 PM
Since in school everything is discussed, and they are even cussing in elementary school (at least in these parts) now, I think it is better to have some exposure to things on TV while you are handy to ask questions, interject your opinions and some guidance, rather than have the kids get all their input and answers to questions via their peers.

Whats the best way to date when having kids?
Posted: 3/12/2008 11:45:01 AM
Best to get that information out before you even consider getting out for a meet. Weed out those not interested right off the bat, the ones you haven't scared off are more likely to be the caliber of person you are interested in to begin with.

What happen? Should? Parenting Classes be taught in public school?
Posted: 3/12/2008 11:37:11 AM
Parenting and techniques for parenting have changed to radically over the past couple of decades, I'd think it would be worth a semester at least. People don't realize they just what an undertaking and responsibility having a kid is until after the fact.

Ex wife announced a potential move
Posted: 3/12/2008 11:35:04 AM
Most cases nowadays, there is a provision in the settlement that prevents moving children a certain distance away without first providing 30 days written notice, which you can start a case to ask that the child not be moved. In California, they'll appoint an attorney for the child (which if you're working you'll pay for) to evaluate the situation and basically drag things out months to years before telling the judge what to decide.
Good luck.

Who is here & single in part b/c of the stressors a child with autism puts on a marriage?
Posted: 2/21/2008 9:57:11 AM
I have a not 15yo Cerebral Palsy (severe) and 11yo Autistic, diagnosed at 3.

It put a tremendous amount of strain on the relationship, all the work, appointments, school issues, medical issues, how much who does, it really does add a ton of extra stresses to a relationship. Particularly nowadays where it is almost a demand that you have a two people income.

Dating a woman with spoiled kids???
Posted: 8/29/2007 11:27:18 AM
If you have the "savior" type personality, and you are working on that, step back, take a breath, and rethink a few things. If she isn't willing to put in the same level of commitment into the relationship that you are, I'd back off and let her make some decisions, see if she wants to bring the relationship to the next level. If you are working in savior mode hoping things will work out in your favor in the long run, you'll probably take a hard fall once she starts deciding to take more control of her life.

Just something to think about.

Problem with potential step child
Posted: 8/28/2007 11:39:28 AM
A lot of great suggestions, but the biggest problem (IMHO) is you need to come to a game plan with the SO, one that he will back you up with. Otherwise, it eventually becomes you against both of them and you'll be the bad guy in the end.

Where you can, leave the disciplining to his dad so that he is in the front line taking responsibility.

Sorry to hear about your son, hopefully the condition is correctable.

Perhaps if the in-laws can't be respectful and supportive, it is best you only deal with the father and they can go through him.

Kids w/ special needs, many kids, multiples, etc
Posted: 6/19/2007 10:26:20 AM
Try finding good people as an older male with two special needs kids. It is a LOT harder. It takes a really special person, a lot of spur of the moment and circumstantial planning. I was lucky enough to find that person here at POF.

But then again, finding somebody really special is what it's all about, right?

The good thing is you meet with the best of people, and quickly weed out the worst of people.

Instead of getting mad, may as well use the opportunities to educate people. It will help as a whole as he gets older and anything that can be done to make society more understanding and tolerant is a good thing.

Posted: 11/30/2006 9:00:01 AM
Use the pullups, save yourself a lot of hassle, she'll outgrow it eventually. Put the pullups over regular underwear though, since they are so absorbitant. Regular underwear will keep things just enough uncomfortable to help motivate her.

Requesting Child Support
Posted: 7/7/2006 11:03:05 PM
Walk away and forget about it unless it is a matter of survival.
You probably have a lot better things to do than going through the stress, time and expense of going through the courts for this issue. With her presently half across the globe, probably won't get anything anyways.

If she's got a kid on the way and a new relationship, she probably won't be waltzing back into your life making demands for anything, being busy with her own life. The lack of interest will benifit you later on if she does try to become a nusance later.

How can I get my son to stop biting?
Posted: 12/22/2005 1:33:47 AM
14mo and 19mo understand consequences and a timeout on a mat or a crib will be effective.

You'd think by now a daycare would be versed in how to handle biters...

To parents/step-parents with kids over 18
Posted: 12/22/2005 1:18:01 AM
When they are in your home, they live by your rules. They don't like it, they can rent a hotel.

Take the angle that it is a matter of courtesy. But since they are 18, I feel you need to be flexible about it, often they don't know where they are gonna be either.

If they can't call the evening before to at least verify that you're on, probably best to be busy. Even if the person is great and all, kind of a bad precident to set.

what song do you sing to your son or daughter
Posted: 12/11/2005 11:30:02 PM
Cute thread. My older boy was so miserable and unhappy all he did was cry for about two years unless he was carried or sung to. In order to cope, I made up or transposed current music to be either booger-butt and/or grouch verses. The official booger-butt song always kind of seemed to stick with everybody that ever heard it..

Ohhhhhhhh, I am a booger butt yes-sir-ree
A booger butt, a booger butt, yep thats me!
We hates our diaper changed, we hates our milk,
I just want to be a great big pill!

Caaaaauuuuusssse I am a booger butt yes-sir-ree
A booger butt, a booger butt, yep thats me!
We hates our bath, it makes us mad,
when I get in the water I'm a real crab!

and on and on it would go. Guess it looses something without hearing it for the cadence. But to this day I just make up all kinds of wild good night songs, teeth brushing songs, etc. Just makes life a little lighter ;)

You should go to the profile review forums and see about improving it. Remove all references to the age bracket. Put less about what you WANT and more about your likes and dislikes. Too many "what I want" in there.

saphirered has a nicely written profile, perhaps location is your biggest obsticle there?

Seperated Claiming to be Single or Divorced
Posted: 12/6/2005 10:55:23 PM

Seperated for 4 years? Man....how long is it going tot ake to get the divorced finalized?


You would be amazed. 5 months between court dates. Delays due to paper/money screwups. Judges that can't make a decision (or more than one or two at a setting) and need "consultants" to tell him what to decide. 2-3 years for simple contested cases easy.

It would be helpful if they broadened out the category for kids to like "kids still at home", "sometimes at home", etc. In a lot of cases, people that have kids not living at home still select they have children cause they do.

Posted: 11/29/2005 11:32:00 PM
I don't believe in giving things a "few months" before finding something to do involving the kids. I think knowing how people interact with their kids is very important. Kind of a barometer to their real personality. Dating without the kids would be kind of a fantasy relationship without the stressors that kids put on a relationship. I think after a few dates and if things seem to be going well so far you may as well do a park thing or something and see more quickly what happens with the extra interaction.

Being a step-parent sucks
Posted: 11/28/2005 12:21:22 AM
Kids (most times) maintain a loyalty to their natural parents that can't be overridden no matter what. They have shown children as young as babies crying when transitioning to the other parent for visitation and suddenly stopping once the parent was safely out of sight, to protect the feelings of the parent they are leaving.

You're significant other should support you, go anyways and let their mom know where you can be found if she wishes. Or... since mom's there, great! She can babysit while you go.

As they near adulthood (or after adulthood), they will understand better how important to their lives you were and you'll hear about it.

It has its sucky moments though where I'm sure you feel underappreciated, but they will learn and be able to show it.
